Coffee Pot

From Wabbitt's Sketch Blog

Substitute for teapot on scavenger hunt #211, this is my coffee pot. Oil pastels over chinese ink background in the 6x8 sketchbook. The chinese ink background was a mistake. Only after I put it down, I realized I can't paint on top of it because the black would contaminate any wet media.

another left hand sketch

Sketched for scavenger hunt #211. Sharpie extra fine on acrylic background in the Strathmore sketchbook. I've been drawing my left hand alot lately, maybe because I never misplace it.

Taste of France

Storefront of the cafe where we had lunch. Very popular place for lunch. I had no regrets, YUM!

Re-scanned my room sketch. Unfortunately no more sketches for the rest of the trip. I had my kit with me for the Botanical Gardens but all those greens intimidated me. I will be sketching or painting from my photos, though.

Zoo Sketches

Elephant Odessy, water soluble graphite & micron pen in the 6x8 inch sketchbook.
Condor in the 4x6 inch Aquabee, watersoluble graphite. Only 10 more pages to go in this sketchbook.
8 hours at the San Diego Zoo, I only got 4 sketches. I took a ton of pictures until my battery ran down almost an hour to closing. Lots of walking and I still didn't see it all. Too much walking for Mom. I did get to see polar bears and pandas. Missed out on the big cats and monkeys.
